Circa LevTex Zip Off Pocket Foldover
Another AMAZING product from Levenger
I travel alot for work, and this notebook is the answer to my prayers. It is a beautiful cover to hold my planner/agenda, PLUS a great sleeve for my iPad. Having them both in the same cover makes carrying my iPad to meetings that much easier. Also, I have the ability to zip the pouch off when I'm getting on a plane and leave the notebook in my carry-on in the overhead.
The craftsmanship is also exceptional. I have received many compliments from my colleagues. I will agree the fold-over feature for taking notes is not possible with the pouch attached to the front, but it is so easy to remove that I don't see that as an issue.

Over the years, I've used random notepads and binders to keep notes and reminders for action items, without any particular organization. The Levenger Zip Off Foldover is perfect! I purchased pocket dividers to section off different meetings/projects. The outside pocket is large enough for my mini iPad and keyboard. I appreciate the zip off functionality if I want to fold over the notebook while taking notes. I particularly like the rich leather and contrast stitching. Very pleased with this purchase and have received numerous compliments from co-workers.

Not as great as I'd hoped.
I carry around a junior sized circa notebook during the day while at work along with my large cell phone. I thought that this zip-pocket notebook would make it easier to carry the cell phone. Unfortunately, the outside pocket is just thick enough (even without anything in it) that I can't fold the front cover over and take notes. The only way that it is really feasible to take notes is to have the note book open on a table. I don't usually have a table to write on...I'm either standing or sitting in a chair with no table or desk nearby. I tried using larger circa discs, but then the notebook is too "loose" when closed...if I add more paper to "tighten" it up, then it defeats the purpose of having the larger discs because now it won't fold-over anymore. I think this would be much more practical if the pocket was on the inside of the front cover, rather than on the outside. But, as usual with Levenger products, it is well made and looks beautiful.
